Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Prolific author Cozzens (The Civil War in the West) has assembled a collection of contemporaneous accounts of the military campaigns against the Apache Indians in the American Southwest in this first of five volumes about the Indian Wars. The materials include army reports, diaries of participants, periodical articles, and newspaper accounts. All were selected on the basis of the writers' involvement and their lack of easy availability elsewhere. The result is a comprehensive, albeit disjointed, account of the Apache Wars. Background information on the people and events is adequate, and references for additional reading are given. Lacking are maps designed to orient the reader to the various campaigns, and some of the editorial notes would have been more useful had they been included in the text. These criticisms aside, this is a well-conceived publication for expanding our understanding of the Indian Wars, with its emphasis on hard-to-locate accounts. For larger libraries needing information on the topic. Edward Gibson, Langston Hughes Memorial Lib., Lincoln Univ., PA

Format: Hardcover
This marvelous book can safely be said to be the last word on the Apache Wars. The breadth and scope of the original accounts presented here - most drawn from obscure 19th Century sources - is remarkable. There are newspaper interviews with General George Crook, an account of the Chiricahua Apaches in captivity by Walter Reed (for whom Walter Reed Hospital is named), a visit with Cochise in his mountain stronghold by the teritorial governor of Arizona, and many, many more "you are there" accounts. Cozzens opens the work with an excellent historical overview of the Apache Wars. Indispensable to the Indian Wars affecionado!

Like the other books in this series, "The Struggle for Appacheria" is a well chosen collection of contemporary accounts, drawn from a very wide variety of sources, and often giving several different perspectives on the same events. These accounts are full of fascinating detail, and reveal societal attitudes in ways today's histories simply cannot match. Much of this primary material is otherwise awfully hard to find, and for anyone with more than a passing interest in the Indian wars of the Southwest it all constitutes an irresistably good read.

Very interesting, largely contemporary, accounts of the post-Civil War Apache campaigns by participants. The author has made a fine selection of articles giving the reader a full picture of this fascinating tragic episode in American history. However, after while, they seem to be very repetitive and blend together in a blur. I didn't read it completely through, but have (and continue) to read an article or two at a setting, set the volume aside for awhile, then return for another portion. If the reader has a serious interest in the Apache Wars, this book is a must buy.
